Straight Key for CW

To start exploring my machining skill, I designed and make the following straight key. 100% aluminum except for the screws and the knob. The overall feel is so far so good.... Tension and distance of travel are adjustable...
View from the other side... My main concern now is to learn what cause the jaggered edge and how to fix it... May be related to tool chatter?
